It remembers incognito session and shares cookies with incognito Do not use the private browsing mode of this browser. It is total junk.
Fantastically Filled With Features...But the Translate Add-On crashes If I Could I'd Give 3.5/5 Giving a 4 when there's an update. I have the most recent version of the Boat app, whats up? Update:Found another good feature, the Floating Browser. My phone home key is broken. Its frustrating when Im using an app like a game, & need a quick net search, I have to do a long process of "forcing" Chrome closed. The Floating Browser gets rid of the hurdles. If I need to do a quick search, after I'm finished using the "Floater", I minimize it to my phone's notification/toolbar, & pull down to reopen as needed.
Unstable on Android 6.0 (droid turbo 2) Worked great on all my phones, including this one (Moto Droid Turbo 2) until the OTA upgrade to Android 6 from Verizon. After the upgrade, sadly Boat crashes with an error Boat Browser unexpectedly Stopped. This happens 5 or 6 times a session, and has not been fixed by clearing cookies, or completely uninstall/reinstall of Boat. Sucks, because I loved the app, but can't use it anymore, please patch this! Thnx.
All gone a bit wrong.... Used to love this browser. Head and shoulders above any other Android browser in terms of its dynamic set-up, presentation and stability. Sadly with each new revision comes a little bit if erosion into that excellence. Most unforgivable amongst these for me; the inability to fully utilise the SD Card. Despite repeated attempts to contact the Boat Dev Team (and contrary to the app summery's claim) this still remains an absent feature. Big deterrent and now actively looking for an alternate browser.
Boat is the best browser I have tried them all. Boat has flash support, so I fully support this browser and recommend to everyone. Best browser for android. Better than chrome Firefox and dolphin combined! Best of the best. Only thing that bugs me is download history never clears and is always in my notification bar when I start boat. Talked to dev and it can be custom rom related. I fixed by clearing cache on boat. Edit: the problem seems to be back. I'm on a different phone stock rom. Samsung note3
The developers suffered head injuries? Worse with every major update. Crashes, poor gui for high-res screens, trending crap persists. That said, gestures are still awesome, when it works , it works well, and functions are fast. ... When they work. The last version before 8.0 was the best, by far. UPDATE : Yes, this version is worse than the previous one.
1. Performance improvement.
